This wasn't the usecase was "sending private emails to
(possible) commiters to discourage them". This is different from abusing
shell. Well, ok, you can write emails using a shell, but I guess you
meant it more general.

I do not think so. The approach to contact board or other PMC members
privately in order to tell them, if the usecase happens, is a good
approach, imho. 

I propose to engrave a sentence in bug red letters somewhere, which
tells commiters how to react in such a situation. It will also prevent
such happenings and it will prevent that this issue is discussed again
and again. Maybe it is already written somewhere?

BTW: The usecase is also possible for non incubating projects. It can
happen everywhere.
